It’s been a while since the last news about one of the most anticipated anime to date. The large fan base already believes that Solo Leveling Anime is going to be one of the best new-gen series. The show is already well known to the audience as the greatest manhwa ever.
Solo Leveling Anime is an adaptation of the South Korean web novel of the same name from 2016. Chugong wrote the story that was published in Kakao’s digital comic and fiction platform KakaoPage. D&C Media later began serializing the novel under their Papyrus label.
However, fans are more familiar with this story through the Solo Leveling webtoon that started airing on KakakoPage in 2018. Jang Sung-rak (aka Doobu) illustrated the manhwa. Sadly, he passed away in January 2022.
Crunchyroll’s Anime Expo 2022 Event announced Solo Leveling Anime.
